I miss ours days in the original Conferense USA, when we were beating up on the likes of Louisville, Cincinnati, Memphis, Marquette, DePaul, Houston, etc. For those that don't know, we haven't been in the Sun Belt since the 80s, when we moved to the Metro Conference with Louisville, South Carolina, and Virginia Tech.

^^^^ I forgot to ask why no one quoted Cornbread saying he put us on the map.

The A10 is going to be extremely tough again, probably around the 5th or 6th toughest conference in the country. Temple, Xavier, Butler, VCU, Dayton, UMASS, Rhode Island, and others.

This schedule needs to be published in print. I have no doubt the Observer will go out of their way again this year to prevent the general public from knowing in advance when the 49ers are playing a game. They are too busy pimpling their beloived (and cheating) tarheels and giving them free advertising.
